So I was looking at the Texas list of National Merit Semifinalists today and I noticed something very interesting. There were only three FWISD students on the list. (Two at Paschal and one at Benbrook.) Dallas had 15, mostly at the GT and STEM magnets, but one at Woodrow Wilson and another at Booker T. It's not like there was an offsetting increase at Fort Worth schools like Harmony, FWAFA, or the privates. I'm scratching my head. Was it just a bad year for this test? I note that, e.g., Aledo didn't have any at all.
